Ireland 2009

Ireland 2009

  •  
    Visiting the famous 'Cliffs Of Moher' in County Clare. An amazing sight with O'Brien's Tower in the background.
  •  
    In many pubs in Ireland they have 'sessions'. That's where local musicians just show up and start playing with each other. This photo was taken at Gus O'Connor's Pub in Doolin.
  •  
    Walking around The Village Of Doolin you see cows, horses, dogs roaming the village and even donkeys.
  •  
    In County Clare we drove through 'The Burren'. A vast landscape with incredible views and landmarks along the way. Here I am next to 'Poulnabrone' - which is a tomb dating back probably between 4200 BC to 2900 BC.
  •  
    The Adare Manor in County Limerick. It is a 19th century manor house located on the banks of the River Maigue.
  •  
    A thatched roof cottage in The Village of Adare.
  •  
    One of my most memorable days in Ireland was driving 'The Ring Of Kerry'. Narrow roads up and through The Kerry Mountains, plenty of sheep to see along the way. Look at the view behind me, this was taken at Ladies View overlooking The Gap Of Dunloe.
  •  
    The famous 'Blarney Castle' - on the way to kissing the stone.
  •  
    Kissing 'The Blarney Stone'. The stone is an oblong stone at the very bottom of this rock wall hanging out over the castle's edge. To kiss the stone you have to climb to the top of the castle and then lean over, backwards, over the edge......and trust the person holding you.
  •  
    The City Of Cork in County Cork. A beautiful place, right on The River Lee.
  •  
    We took a side trip to The Village of Cobh (pronounced Cove). It is a small seaside town.
  •  
    Finally arriving in Dublin, we went right to 'The Temple Bar'. It is the cultural quarter of Dublin with cobblestone streets, many shops, pubs and restaurants. Pictured is Oliver St. John Gogarty's Pub.
  •  
    We went on a traditional Irish musical pub crawl. They take you from pub to pub, playing songs and telling stories. The tour is guided by locals, so you get a great sense of the people and the musical history of Ireland.
  •  
    Heading to The Guinness Brewery in Dublin. Seven floors of exhibits in this historic building.
  •  
    One of the exhibits in The Guinness Brewery. They explain the long lost art of wooden barrel marking.
  •  
    In Dublin City there are many statues. This is the statue of 'Molly Malone'. A famous Irish song was written about her: In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone, (the chorus goes = "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!").
